What is the Shopify Mobilia theme?
The Mobilia Shopify theme is a sleek and stylish theme created by Out of the Sandbox.
It is an award-winning team who have developed some of the top-rated Shopify themes.
Mobilia can be customized to meet your customers needs and is quick and easy to set up.
It comes in four different styles including Milan, Napa, Sydney, and Tokyo.
This theme is perfect for store owners in the fashion, beauty, apparel, cosmetics, jewelry, and wearable tech niche.
Milan Theme Style
Milan is ideal for showcasing fashion and apparel products.
It uses a combination of sans serif and serif font style to create a balance between different elements on the page. Serif typeface makes it easier to read text on a website.
The light color palette helps with keeping the layout clean and minimal. This puts more focus on the product and call to actions.
At the top of the page, you can display a promotional banner to notify your customers about special promotions or discount codes.
Unlike most of the theme’s I have reviewed from Out of the Sandbox, the Milan theme style uses a fixed width banner on the home page. Clicking on the banner will direct the user to a blog post. This is great for promoting upcoming events or featured collections.
Below the banner, you can display featured products. Hovering over the tiles will display a Quick Shop button which allows the customer to view the product details without leaving the current page.
Under the featured products, you can display full-screen tiles to direct the user to specific collections, featured product and an Instagram feed.
In the footer area, you can display an email sign up the field and social icons which can be linked back to your social media profiles.
The product page has been designed to help convince customers to make a purchase on your store.
Features like the image gallery, customer reviews, size guide, social sharing icons, and related products, provides a great user experience on your product pages.
Napa Theme Style
The Napa theme style uses a bold and vibrant color palette with a combination of typefaces to give the theme a modern user interface.
However, having multiple typefaces creates more clutter on the page. It can look very busy when viewed on a mobile device.
Above the fold, you can display a promotional banner at the top of the page, to draw your customers’ attention to special offers and events.
Under the banner, you can display a full-width slideshow to capture the customers’ attention. This is followed by a heading and call to action. Clicking on the button will direct the user to a collections page.
The main navigation is kept very simple which makes it easier for your customers to navigate around your store.
Below the slideshow, there is a section for some text about your business, full-screen tiles and a featured product.
Further down, you can embed a video from Vimeo, display your Instagram feed and an email sign up form. I found it a bit strange the developers did not place the email sign up form in the footer instead.
On the product page, you can display customer reviews, color variations, social sharing icons, and related products.
When a customer clicks on the Add To Cart button, a message will appear to notify the customer they have added a product to their cart.
Sydney Theme Style
The Sydney style uses a soft color palette and round typeface to create a simple and elegant user interface.
This theme style is perfect for store owners with handmade products. Using the large banners on the homepage is great for creating a high visual impact.
You can display a promotional banner at the top of the page. It can also be closed if the user doesn’t want it visible on the screen.
The full-width slideshow is perfect for showcasing high-quality lifestyle photos of your products. When a user clicks on a banner, they will be taken to a specific collection.
Under the slideshow, you can display a featured product. Customers can add this product to their cart without having to leave the current page.
Featuring products on your homepage can motivate customers to make a purchase from your store.
There’s also a section for you to add a heading and some text to provide some information about your business. This helps new visitors understand what your store offers.
You can also display two full-screen tiles. When a customer clicks on either tile, they will be directed to a collection or image gallery.
Under this section, you can showcase more products to let customers know about your best sellers or products currently on special.
Below the featured products, there is another full-screen banner, As Seen In section for media logos and an Instagram feed.
The footer is very simple and clean. There is an email sign up form to collect your customers’ email address so that you can send them email marketing material in the future for more sales.
You can also link your social media profiles, such as your Facebook, Twitter and Instagram account.
Tokyo Theme Style
The Tokyo theme style is vibrant and energetic.
The use of bright and bold colors helps to create a welcoming user interface for new visitors.
The header is similar to the previous styles. You can enable a promotional banner a the top of the page. Instead of a slideshow, you can display to tiles directs the user to specific collections or web page.
Under the tiles, you can display a heading and some text to talk a bit about your business. Below the tiles, you can showcase some featured products, another set of tiles and featured products.
Just before the footer, you can display brand logos to create credibility and increase trust for new visitors on your site.
The footer is very similar to the other theme styles. I noticed you can link your YouTube, Vimeo, Pinterest, and Snapchat profiles.
